are these types of structures normal?

a few days ago I notice something kinda strange around the underside of the head on my penis. I noticed that the skin looks elevated? (thats the best way I can describe it). it doesn't look like a wart, (they have appeared  a straight line like a ring sorta of, not cauliflower or round in shape. there is no other point of infection and trust me I throughly looked, and while I know its not 100% effective the last time I had sex was with a condom and it uh didn't last very long. like literally a few seconds the condom was intact and I used it properly)  the time frame would seem to match up (3 months ago) but ive also seen that you can have HPV 6 or 11 and it just randomly show up at some point in your life.

I deff know isn't herpes. it doesn't itch or hurt it isn't a cluster so much as like I said a straight line.

there is no redness to this elevation or whiteness so it doesn't seem like PPP either. ive seen several pictures of PPP and it doesn't look like that at all.

im just kinda baffled. I guess it could have always been there and I just didn't notice. is this something I should be worried about? does the underside of the head have glands and such that might indicate this kind of structure?

thanks in advance!

There are a lot of different appearances to PPP, so it could be that, but you really should let a doctor check it out.

I agree that it's not herpes, probably not warts, though in theory it could be. The only way to know is to get it checked out. I can't tell you what they are online, even if I was a doctor. Just go get it checked out and put your mind at ease.
